Pac-Man Weddings: More Popular Than You Think

Pac-Man Weddings are Popular

Thanks to the internet savvy of geeky, obsessive brides-to-be and visual crack sites like Pinterest, I’ve seen more pictures of video game themed weddings than I have ever cared to. These days, extreme geek weddings are becoming more and more commonplace, as a whole generation of kids raised on video games are growing up and getting hitched.

One of the most popular gamer wedding themes that keeps cropping up is Pac-Man. I guess it’s not hard to understand why; Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man are the original video game power couple, after all.

Here’s a round-up of some of the Pac-Man wedding stuff I’ve come across—wedding cakes, cake toppers, garters, invitations, etc.—which seems to range from shoddily-made and tacky to tasteful and classy.

…or as classy as planning your wedding around a big yellow orb who stuffs his face with pellets can be.

Gamer Wedding Protip

Here’s a wedding planning tip for you gamers: the Pac-Man theme is tired. If you really want to make a splash, go for something more adventurous and less conventional like Toad and Toadette or (probably) gay Sonic and Tails.
